Lamentations 5:16; Ezra 4:20; Ecclesiastes 2:8

16  sThe crown has fallen from our head;

woe to us, for we have sinned!


20 And mighty kings have been over Jerusalem, ywho ruled over the whole province Beyond the River, to whom ztribute, custom, and toll were paid.


I also gathered for myself silver and ggold and the treasure of hkings and iprovinces. I got jsingers, both men and women, and many kconcubines,1 the delight of the sons of man.
